up but i am going to get something that is good for this fm lay and good for the american economy. >> in the senate mitch mcconnell proposed a vote on the part of the president's proposal that would allow the white house and not congress to control on its own without their input. but majority leader harry reid said that is not. >> if the president's proposal is made in good faith our friends should be eager to vote for them. so i am surprised the majority leader declined a chance for them to support it for their votes. so i guess we are left to conclude that it couldn't pass by a fair majority of votes and that they would rather that i can take the country off the cliff. >> get ready to listen to lawmakers today try to spin the unemployment report in favor of their proposal one way or the other starting about 3 and a half hours from right now. >> we will be watching. looking forward to seeing those numbers. sthooivengs. >>> it is time for a look at who is talking. this morning we are hearing from john mccain. mccain discussing the growing crisis in syria. the reports frightening.
